Accessories and Documentation
Included inside the box top of the IXG-80HA2 comes the heat sinks as well as other hardware. You can see SilenX has made the GTX2xx series card voltage section heat sink as well as a separate heat sink for their chipsets. To the right, the IXG-80HA2 also comes with fourteen RAMsinks. These can also be used to cool vital components on the PCB's that the plate heat sinks don't cover for various other installations.
Onto the rest of the included goodies. In the top left is the GTX2xx series chipset protector socket. Under that in red and to the right in black tape form, five of each, are the washers. One set for above the PCB and one for below. The left bag labelled "Long Bolt" has the taller version of the mounting pins. At the top of that is three foam pads used to set on some RAM IC's, depending on installation. The second bag contains a shorter set of the long bolts and the spring tensioned screws for mounting. The small strip of foam pads here is for placing on the bottom of the GTX2xx rear heat sink to keep the sharp edges of the heat sink off the PCB itself. SilenX also includes a decent sized tube of thermal grease. Last but not least are the black push-pins for mounting the GTX2xx heat sinks to the card.
SilenX does a great job with the instructions for mounting the IXG-80HA2 to just about any card on the market. Clearly labelled is a parts list and a diagram of which mounting holes apply to which card you want to apply this cooler to. The step by step instructions are clear and pretty simple to follow. Just be sure to read it completely prior to applying the heat sinks, as issues may arise in the installation later if you don't pay close attention.
